Dear family, friends, and supporters,

2 years ago, we ran in our first election on June 7, 2016 in the Democratic Primary as a "write-in" candidate! We received 1,177 write-in votes! Pretty good for not being on the ballot and campaigning for 2 months.

1 year ago on April 4, 2017, we ran in our second election under the amazing Green Party and ended up placing 7th out of 24 candidates, beating 14 Democrats & ALL other party candidates (including the Republican, Libertarian, & Non-Partisan candidates). We were also 394 votes away from 4th place and spent the least amount of money per vote (meaning we had people power!).

With that being said, today, we have a new Congressman: another neoliberal Democrat who takes corporate money but rationalizes it's "okay" because he was endorsed by progressive groups and because of a simple progressive voting record.

But that's not good enough. People are hungry for real change. People are sick and tired of establishment politics and politicians accepting huge lump sums of money from the people/companies they're "supposedly" going to stand up against in office.

It is not good enough to just vote "right" or do something good every now and then. We need people who are willing to go above and beyond and help build a movement and push for revolutionary change. It's time for a REAL political revolution!

A political revolution where we don't compromise on our values, where we push for better, like cancelling student debt or a guaranteed basic income, and where we destroy the 2-party system, a system that has enslaved the working class and the masses to fill the pockets of the 1% for too long. It's time to give the people something NEW!

With that being said, we are planning on running against Jimmy Gomez, the new Congressional District 34 Congressman in the June 5, 2018 Primary under the Green Party.

We are not running because we want to, but because we have to. We are running because people are dying, literally, for real change, and guess what? The same old same is not working and has not been working. I would encourage anyone else with the right heart and mind to do the same in 2018!

If you know of anyone that would make an amazing Congress person for Los Angeles' Congressional District 34, please let me know ASAP and I would be happy to step aside, but only if that person runs Green.

In the meantime, let's get the ball rolling! Please sign up to volunteer below!

We Passed $20,000 Raised & Guess what?

Thank you everyone for your generous donations, we surpassed $20,000 raised today! 

Our Congressman and opponent is likely probably over $200,000 raised for the election season but we make up for it with People Power! 

One thing I wanted to update you all on is that we have a very HIGH chance in advancing to the November General Election in California's 34th Congressional District of Los Angeles, a first for a Green Congressional Candidate in Los Angeles! 

We just need to place in the Top 2 spots in our June 5th Election to advance to the General Election and guess what?!

There are ONLY 3 candidates (including us) so we really need your help to make top 2 and win on June 5th! If we win on June 5th, we will win in November, I guarantee you!

How can you help? 

1) If you live locally, we need help knocking on doors, usually 2 hour sessions and you have a partner! Sign up here!

2) If you live far from Los Angeles or out of state, we need help making phone calls to voters for at least 30 minutes per session (that's pretty short), we have a script and everything so it's really easy! Sign up here!

3) Donate! Campaigns are really expensive and we're going to need help with that! 

Let's use these next 2 to 3 months to reach out to the voters. Many voters don't have social media or don't know what's going on besides what's going on in their home and our opponent and Congressman has been sending mail every week at the taxpayers's expense using his "Franking Privileges".

If you would like to help knock on doors or make phone calls to voters, please sign up to volunteer or email me at kennethmejiaforcongress@gmail.com to get involved! 

Thank you friends, family, and supporters!

Let's make History!

In solidarity,

-Kenneth Mejia
